Are there any Brits taking part?

As it's the only UK date in the World Triathlon Series calendar, there are plenty of Brits to cheer on.

The biggest names are the Brownlee brothers, particularly as Alistair and Jonny are both Yorkshire lads, and it's the first time that they'll be competing together this year.

Alistair, who won gold in Rio and famously helped younger brother Jonny over the finish line at 2016's final World Triathlon series event in Mexico, has been focused on the longer distance course while Jonny, who finished second in the 2016 World Series, missed the first two races of the series and suffered a crash in Yokohama and will be seeking to make up valuable points on his home race.

Other British athletes competing in the elite men's race are Thomas Bishop, Gordon Benson, Marc Austin, Adam Bowden and Grant Sheldon.
